We spent the weekend on a 3-day class trip to Sherbrooke Village a heritage museum set in the 1860's. We dressed up in period clothes and experienced life as it was in the olden days.
Can I say that I'm really glad that women's fashion has evolved? After spending the day in a full length dress, petticoat, snood and bonnet, I had a new found appreciation for what my ancestors endured. Especially when it rained all afternoon and I was trudging through the puddles. No prince on a white horse ever came to lay down his coat for me. Oh well, maybe next time.
